The novel, recounts the four journeys of Lemuel Gulliver, a practical-minded Englishman trained as a surgeon who takes to the seas when his business fails.

Swift through Gulliver's encounters with people of strange lands, with their equally bizarre customs, constantly attacks British and European society.
